There are hundreds of cafes in Saigon from modern to classic, from luxury to cheap. In this post I would like to introduce a special cafe floating on Saigon river. The cafe is hidden on Tran Xuan Soan Street in far District 8. The Tran Xuan Soan Street is full of slums along the river and it’s an experience to learn more about Saigon real life which you couldn’t see in beautiful District 1 with Ben Thanh market, lots of 5-star hotels and restaurants. The cafe is on a 2-floor old wooden floating boat with glass window. It’s interesting to sit on a boat bobbed in the middle of the river. The boat is decorated with plant basin which make customer relaxing. The drink is good so that you would like to come back. Most of furnitures are old but wooden style make you feel comfortable and calm to sit, drink and chit-chat with your lover or friends.

How about drinking coffee on this old wooden boat?
